Trump ally Roger Stone says someone should be fired over Melania Trump’s speech, but she remains an ‘asset’

Donald Trump’s longtime ally Roger Stone said Tuesday someone should be fired over Melania Trump’s speech, but stressed she remains an “asset” to the campaign and that the allegations of plagiarism are no big deal.
“I just don’t think the voters care,” Stone said at a Politico event.
“It’s sloppy staff work and somebody should go.”
Stone compared Trump’s wife to President Kennedy’s wife, Jacqueline, a fashionable outsider who won over Americans.
“She is refined, she’s educated, she speaks multiple languages,” he said.
“She’s more comfortable being photographed than she is speaking in public,” he said. “She’s an asset.”
